2011 Atlanta Music Festival: Songs of Aspiration, Hope, and 
Progress 

In 1910 members of First Congregational Church were denied admittance to Metropolitan Opera performances in 
Atlanta. Their response was the creation of the "Atlanta Colored Music Festival," which featured the most 
prominent African American concert artists of the time. Dwight Andrews, pastor of Atlanta's First Congregational 
Church, in association with Emory University has revived his congregation's music festival tradition in a ten-year 
collaboration with Steven Darsey and Meridian Herald. Tickets to the concert may be purchased by contacting 
the Emory Box office directly at 404-727-5050. Link to Emory's website to read more about this event.
